Local media company Archant, publishers of the Eastern Daily Press, has launched a £500,000 matched advertising fund for independent local businesses affected by the coronavirus pandemic.  

Grants are available for a minimum of £200 and maximum of £2,000 matched advertising credits. These credits can be used towards print or digital advertising within Archant newspapers and associated websites in Norfolk and across the areas it operates. The fund is open to locally owned and operated independent businesses that have been affected by the coronavirus during the past few months.  Its aim is to help them kickstart their advertising in the critical time of May and June as we start to move out of lockdown so that they can let customers old and new know that they are open for business.  

All applications must be made in May to be used by June 30th. To find out more about the fund and how you can apply visit: Full terms and conditions can also be found here.
